Self-care: Turmeric and Honey Face Mask

Saturday, 28 March 2015 00:00  by Yolanda F.

The word is out that turmeric heals, but it’s not news. In fact, it’s been used since ancient times in India and China in food and in medicine. Because of its healing powers for inflammation, fighting the aging process and cleansing the skin of toxins, it’s a great addition to your natural beauty supply cabinet.

This recipe is also quite edible, and if you do, you may put a dent in feelings of depression. Studies have shown that stress-induced damage to the hippocampal neurons may be why you’re depressed in the first place. And turmeric has been shown to affect neurogenesis.

You can even eat the mixture for good health, but if you put it on your face, you can start reverse aging, naturally hydrate your skin, remove dead skin cells and rejuvenate your complexion.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon raw organic honey
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon raw milk

What you do:

  1. Stir turmeric into the honey and milk until it becomes a smooth paste.
  2. Apply to face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
  3. Rinse with warm water.

Enjoy the sweet-smelling glow of your face. If you haven’t used it all, don’t let it go to waste. Eat it!
